Basic Science Engineering & Humanities

Basic Science Engg. & Humanities

Engineering as a stream of study demands all the basic knowledge of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and ignoring these streams can never make a perfect engineer. The Department of Basic Science Engineering & Humanities is the backbone of the entire Atria Instiutute of Technology. In fact, it is the most vital part of the B.E. curriculum. Basic Science Engineering and Humanities supports efficiently the engineering department by providing quality training. The Department is also responsible for playing a pivotal role in development of communications skills of the students, which is of prime importance to the industry.

"Atria Institute of Technology signs an MoU with TPCRA (Trade Promotion Council of Robotics and Automation) to equip our students and faculty in the areas of Discovery Education, Blockchain, AI, IoT, AR-VR, Cyber Security, Geospatial Technologies, 5G, Serverless Computing, Robotics, Biometrics, 3D Printing, LiDar, Drones and UAV. "


      The Department of Basic Sciences Engineering and Humanities is a first rostrum all the aspiring engineers step on to. It strongly believes that knowledge is the base of all basic sciences and it strives to achieve this power to its best. This Department is devoted to foster the fundamental principles and understanding of Science to enhance the students’ basic knowledge of Engineering. It offers excellent introductory courses in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English which will both instruct and stimulate students in all of the University's programs.
The department believes that engineers are a significant source of technological innovation and expertise. To achieve this belief, the department continuously fosters students to focus on their brainpower on solving problems through the application of science and mathematics, discovering new ways to make life better for the general public.
Students are guided by well experienced and highly qualified faculty members who strive to improve the students learning, research and development processes. The "spark" of creativity is a hallmark of the department and it endeavour to create the same zest amongst all the budding engineers and this process is unceasing.
